The Metro New Jersey Chapter Welcomes You!

Welcome to the Metro New Jersey Chapter of the Appraisal Institute. Our mission is to be a national leader in appraisal education; to foster a spirit of camaraderie, attract top level real estate professionals to our organization, and engender an atmosphere of professional pride, outstanding achievement and success for those affiliated with the chapter and their firms.

Everyone (AI and Non-AI students) must have a user name (email address) and password (reset by signing in to the Appraisal Institute website, and choose forgot password to get link to reset). When registering, keep in mind registration fees are priced according to a reduced fee for downloading materials and do not include a hard copy of materials. You will pay an additional fee for materials and shipping if you do not want to print materials on your own or bring an electronic device.

Schedule Changes due to COVID-19

The Metro New Jersey Chapter is following the recommendations of the CDC and postponing all events and classes for a minimum of 8 weeks. If you are registered for a class or event in the next 8 weeks, we will be posting the new dates and possible location changes as soon as we are comfortable with the safety and well being of attendees.

If you have registered and have questions about your registration, please email the chapter at
